Announcement for Patients of Bickler Orthodontics LLC
We are working towards opening our office as quickly as we can while taking every precaution to ensure a safe environment for everyone. We will start calling our patients that initially had an appointment in the month of April. We hope to be able to see everyone very soon.
On April 23rd, Governor Kate Brown released guidelines for re-opening dental clinics. We will be following the strict guidelines of the Oregon Health Authority (OHA), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and the Wasco County Health Department.
These guidelines are put in place to maintain the health and welfare of our patients, staff and the community at large. We appreciate your assistance with these requests and ask that you arrive for your appointment with patience while we get our new routines in place.
*Due to the fact that some procedures we perform in the clinic cause an aerosol some appointments may be scheduled at a later date to accommodate our arrival of an ADS dental system http://www.adsequip.com/ to provide additional protection to you and our staff.
What our patients should expect:
We have decided that all appointments will be scheduled in a manner that decreases the number of patients in the office and allow all persons to maintain the 6 foot social distancing requirement. If you happen to stop by, call us when you arrive to the parking area to see if the numbers allow for an impromptu visit to pay your bill or pick up elastics. If you are high risk, medically compromised, have flu like symptoms or just prefer to not to leave home, please call let us know and we will schedule you in the future.
What are the Bickler Orthodontics team members doing to ensure health and safety?
Dr. Bickler and staff are taking the COVID 19 threat seriously and are here to take care of your orthodontic care needs. We are excited to return to providing care and have missed our patients.
We will get through this together.
